The most famous beer gardens in the world may be in Munich, home of Oktoberfest, but that doesn’t mean you need to head overseas to enjoy this al fresco drinking pastime. While some beer gardens in the U.S. have been around for over 100 years, others have been cropping up in recent years, meaning beer lovers can now sample a wider selection of brews close to home. One thing our picks all share in common is a passion for fine pours and convivial outdoor settings. From a contemporary hangout in Philadelphia to a Viennese-inspired locale in the Midwest, these 15 beer gardens will make you want to raise a glass.
